Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

We could have talked about any number of romantic movies today, in which two people fall in love and love happily ever after.

But we decided to put a twist on things and present a movie that is based much more in reality than in lovey-dovey fantasy land.

The title of the movie is the first hint that this isn’t just a love story: The Last Kiss. Why is it the last kiss? Shouldn’t it be the first kiss or the best kiss?

Zach Braff, from the popular American sitcom Scrubs, put out an awesome love-story movie a couple of years ago called Garden State. But the The Last Kiss shows the darker side of love: the doubts, the fear, the mistakes.

Listen to Amanda and Mason talk about relationship reality in The Last Kiss.

3. Watch - Watch the video without reading the dialog.

Mason: What would you think are some good movies to watch on Valentine’s Day? Like, something that just came out or… on video…

Amanda:  The Last Kiss was pretty good. That’s still in my mind.

Mason:  Yeah?

Amanda:  Yeah.

Mason:  I didn’t really like it but aside from that I don’t, I don’t necessarily think of it as a romantic film.

Amanda:  I thought it was real and it hit home. I thought it was a great film to watch with your current partner.

Mason:  Well, I mean, OK, ‘cause, I mean, as someone who’s married and in a long-term relationship...

Amanda:  Right.

Mason:  Maybe I could see it having a much different… That’s a different perspective than I have.

Amanda:  I think because it was so open and honest about infidelity, it forced you to speak about that topic with your partner and get it out in the open.

Mason:  Did it?

Amanda:  So it’s not a taboo topic to talk about it. And when you’re talking about something like that I think you’re less prone to go and behave poorly. There’s nothing to hide.

Mason:  OK. So The Last Kiss made Zach Braff the sacrificial lamb, if you will…

Amanda:  Yes.

Mason:  For the relationships of us all.

Amanda:  Or for people in their thirtysomethings.

Mason:  In their thirtysomethings.

Amanda:  Yes. And you know what? Uh, Jacinda from The Real World: London?

Mason:  Uh huh.

Amanda:  Pretty good.

Mason:  Is that what she…

Amanda:  That’s who that was.

Mason:  Really?

Amanda:  Yes.

Mason:  Well…

Amanda:  Forrilla.

討論

Amanda liked the honesty of The Last Kiss. She is married, so she had a slightly different perspective from Mason, who didn’t really like the film.

They agree that even though this movie is about love, it is not really a romantic film.

When Amanda says, “Forrilla!” she is just joking around. “Forrilla” isn’t even a word! She means “For real.”

Have you seen The Last Kiss?

Do you talk about infidelity with your boyfriend or girlfriend?

I have not seen this movie but someday I hope to see it!


I think ,Lovers usually dont talk about infidelity,because when two persons are in LOVE they think their love is strongest LOVE in the world and it will last forever and nobody can destroy it,but we should be realistic!Everything is possible in this world!


If someone fell in love with you , can be in love with another person too!;)


Eternal LOVE or True LOVE is only between parents and children!

Who saw "unfaithful"?

This is another bitter reality about long term relationship and the high possibility of the things that then will be said"It just happened"
